Fierce Lion Cufflinks

Carter, Howe lion cufflinks. (J9158)

Carter Lions

Wary lions and lionesses menacingly snarl from the tops of these beautifully sculpted cufflinks.  The finely detailed big cats will add a touch of elegance (and ferocity) to any cuff.  Created by Carter, Howe & Company in 14kt gold, circa 1900.

Carter, Howe & Company (predecessor of Carter, Gough) was one of the premier makers of fine cufflinks, stickpins and other jewels during the late Victorian era and early 20th century.  The firm was especially known for its imaginative portrayal of exotic and fantastic creatures in finely worked gold.

Carter, Howe's attention to craftsmanship and design can be seen on the backs of these cufflinks. Note the gracefully curved bridges that are strongly anchored to the closed tops and "bean-shaped" backs.  The sturdy bridges help assure that the cufflinks remain safely on the cuff while protecting the finely sculpted tops.

Carter, Howe maker's mark. (J9158)

The Carter, Howe maker's mark, an outline of an arrowhead surrounding a small letter "C",  is stamped on the curved bridges of the cufflinks just to the right of the "14" gold purity mark. The marks are somewhat obscured by the rounded shape of the bridge.
